Equipment needed: 1. Padded Mat (optional). Today’s routine is very well balanced! We are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of your shoulders, t-spine aka your upper back, and hips.
We are starting off with an end-range stretch isometric technique to stretch out and activate the back of your shoulders, specifically your posterior rotator cuff muscles. Remember to stretch out your shoulder as far as you can without pain, and then start to activate your muscles. Next we are working on an upper back activation movement. The main issue we see with people’s upper back is the fact that they lose “touch” with it, and have difficulty activating it. This movement is great to get you back in touch with your upper back and reverse that roundness from all of the sitting you are most likely doing. We are finishing up with a hip, shoulder, and core activation movement. This one is great for getting your gluts, core stabilizing muscles, lower traps and posterior shoulder muscles firing.
Have fun out there with your new found mobility! Social media thought of the day: Why do you work on your flexibility and mobility? We’d love to hear from you! Post on to your Instagram story or feed and tag us in it @movementvault. We’ll send you a comment and some ❤️. Get it guys!
